Gathered skirts are the staple of any little girl's wardrobe. Easy to make and comfortable to wear, they're a win win. What's more, you don't need much yardage of fabric, especially when made with co-ordinating colours.
Marci, from Stone Cottage Adventures, whipped up this adorable Prairie Skirt using my tiered ruffle skirt tutorial. But she didn't make it exactly as is in the tutorial - she modified the pattern and substituted fabric for the bottom tier, instead of lace. I love it, Marci!!!
And see how she's teamed it with a denim jacket. Totally changes the look. The end result from the same tutorial - two different styles.
Marci made the skirt as a present for a little girl - adding the denim jacket, leggings and t-shirt as well as a matching bag and hat. A great idea for a present.
Do you follow patterns and tutorials to the letter, do you modify them to suit your needs, or do you use them only as a starting point?
